We fund doctor, nurse and midwife training to improve healthcare in rural Nepal.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page, in support of a brilliant local charity, run by lovely, dedicated people.

I committed to running a half marathon as I think it is a good physical and mental challenge.  The hardest part of this, by far, is the mental discipline to keep going with something that I don't enjoy.  What will really spur me on, is the knowledge that a fabulous cause can benefit from the blisters that I am getting pounding the streets.  My main motivator, Jill, has  been fab at getting us out doing the miles.

If we think our healthcare system is stretched (and it clearly is), we have far more at our disposal than communities in Nepal, particularly in respect of training, facilities and ratio of doctors to population.  Nepal has played a significant role in the lives of close family members, who have witnessed the issues first hand, and brought the desire to do what we can to help to the fore.

Doctors for Nepal improves healthcare in rural Nepal by providing scholarships to underprivileged medical and nursing students, who return to work in their communities once qualified, thus providing sustainable healthcare. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
